VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - Janet Earnst has been volunteering for years at Helping His Hands.
Earnst says, "It's helping people. I don't know, we just enjoy having something to do to help out."
Earnst helps stock shelves at the organization's food pantry. Her job is getting easier thanks to a new facility.
Earnst explains, "So far it's an adjustment. But we have a lot more room. It's going to be a real nice facility."
Helping His Hands made the move last week. Volunteers helped get everything moved in just two days.
Director Scott Shipman explains, "By about 8:40, 8:45 that night on Tuesday we were done and ready to open up Wednesday morning."
The organization was ready to go for Wednesday's food distribution. Shipman says it is important to keep vital programs going during the move.
Shipman says, "The way it is right now we've got more room to be able to bring more families in and help them. Our auto ministry, with our car lifts and everything, we're going to be able to help out more people in that area."
The new move will allow helping his hands to store more donations.
Shipman says, "I mean every area, including disaster for sure, is going to have more room more space for stuff."
For Earnst, more space means more room to get the job done.
Earnst says, "When big supplies come in you can't put everything out there. So we're going to have better places I think to keep track of where things are and find them."
